I currently scalp with FP Markets, and I must say compared to my previous brokers FP Markets spreads and execution are better, the spreads in EURUSD start from 0.0 pips and its stable during high market movements.
Won't pretend to be an expert because I'm new to both forex and this platform. My vested interest in your topic comes from the fact that the person who got me interested in forex is a heavy supporter of scalping. And as per him, low spreads are the key to turning a profit while scalping. Judging by the list of brokers on this site, FP markers seems fine and a few others too. Now idk weather one should select one of these or go a more established brand like XM or pepperstone.
I think the usage of leverage should be based on the experience a trader has in forex. A beginner with minimum experience should trade like Davidfx89 with 50:1 so that it's risk-free and easy to trade.
I currently scalp using FP Markets ECN account, the spreads are tighter starting from 0.0 pips in most major pairs, especially in EURUSD. The spreads are stable even during volatile market conditions. The commission cost per round lot is only $6 with an execution speed of 80 ms, which is faster than my previous brokers.
From my trading experience with them for over a year, I can say it is suitable for scalping because the spreads are tighter, averaging from 0.1 to 0.3 pips in most major pairs with a faster execution speed of 30 ms.
